Meeting the Demand
Demand for NGLs by agriculture, petrochemical and plastics industries, as well as for refining and home heating, is growing due to the abundance of lower-cost natural gas feedstock from the Marcellus and Utica shale plays.
The proposed Bluegrass Pipeline would provide producers with 200,000 barrels per day of mixed NGLs take-away capacity in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The proposed pipeline’s capacity could be increased to 400,000 barrels per day to meet market demand.
By combining new construction with an existing pipeline, we believe the Bluegrass Pipeline will have a significantly reduced construction footprint and will be placed into service sooner than other options.
